Bird Crafts for Preschoolers
Are you looking for a mess free, quick and easy craft for preschoolers? Then you will love these simple Popsicle stick puppets. I am in love with their quirky colorful hair. These silly bird puppets totally brightened my day and the kiddos had a blast making them. We have made a number of different bird crafts for preschoolers. However, I think these are the cutest!
We love using tape in place of paint. It is quick, mess free and a fun way to work on fine motor skills. A few of our favorite tape projects include our little tape chicks and adorable Duct tape hobby horse. Love!
How to make your own Bird Puppet:
- Cardboard circle
- Colored tape ~ we used masking bright colored masking tape
- Popsicle stick
- Colored paper strips
- Goggly eyes
I helped the younger kiddos by precutting strips of tape. However the older preschoolers loved the challenge of cutting the sticky tape on their own.
The kids used the tape strips to cover their cardboard circles. They then taped on the popsicle stick and crazy paper strip feathers.
Goggly eyes and a quirky paper beak are the finishing touches.
I showed the kids how to gently curl the ends of the paper. How cute!
